IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON ISWO PROGRAMMING

October 28, 2021 – ISWO continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic situation in the province of Ontario and the recommendations provided by public health authorities. Ontario is now in Step 3 of the reopening roadmap, with expanded access to indoor setting (with restrictions), including where there are larger numbers of people and where face coverings can’t always be worn. As a result, ISWO’s approach will be ‘community specific’ and ‘community driven,’ meaning that staff will be working with communities directly who are interested in programming to ensure that it is safe to do so, as individual communities face varying circumstances in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. Protocols and procedures for all ISWO programming will be implemented with due diligence and in alignment with public health recommendations and restrictions, including proof of vaccination for certain indoor settings and events. As indoor program still remains quite limited, ISWO encourages youth, families and communities to continue accessing the wide variety of online sport, wellness and leadership programs ISWO has to offer, for all ages and abilities.
